New Delhi :  

Beijing has barred Justin Bieber to perform in their country beacuse of his past 'bad behaviour' although it admitted that the Canadian singer has talent.

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture, in reponse to a purported fan's question on its web page, told that it had taken the step in the interest of imposing standards and order and 'cleaning up' the domestic performance market. It said Bieber's "bad behavior," including in his privatelife abroad and while in China to perform, had caused "publicdissatisfaction." It did not provide details.

It also said that 'pubic disatisfaction'had arised due to his 'bad behaviour' including in his private life abroad and while in China to perform. It did not provide a thorough explanation.

Bieber gave his performance in Beijing, Shanghai and the eastern city of Dalian in 2013.

"Justin Bieber is a young foreign singer who is talented at singing but also controversial," the bureau said.

"Therefore, it's not appropriate to bring in artists who show bad behavior," it said. "However, in the process of growing up and improving his words and deeds, he can truly develop into a singer who is beloved of the masses," it added.

Bieber, 23, has had numerous run-ins with police around the world. During his 2013 visit to China he drew criticism when pictures showed him being carried up the Great Wall of China by a pair of bodyguards.

Bieber's "Purpose World Tour" wraps up in Asia in September with performances in Tokyo, the semiautonomous Chinese territory of Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia.
